So ages back I posted that thread talking about light theory. Well It's gotten to the point where i have all the math sorted out and so I'm going to be releasing them all in a series of blog posts on my tumblr.

This is the first one. The next should be on how to calculate the location of a specular reflection!

This is what i like to see. A scientific measurable solution to a problem that is neigh impossible to teach beyond "practice make perfect".

Will certainly be following this and analyzing the work and somehow harness the power of whats being taught to be a better artist. Hopefully.

Haha thanks man.

Yeah it bewildered me that i hadn't really heard of it before as well. Only after i worked it out did i find more resources on it... which is a sign that barley anyone knows it haha.

As great as Huevaluechroma.com is, it's amazingly obtuse.
